The Mountain Goats is essentially one man, John Darnielle, and his acoustic guitar. He's put tonnes of albums on 7", 10", 12", CD's and cassettes... yet still remains relatively obscure. Check him out. Head to www.themountaingoats.net (his website. warning: super bad navigation on the site.) This is my tab for "Pink and Blue" off of the "All Hail West Texas" album. I'm very confident about the accuracy. Listen to the song for the strumming pattern. It's very simple.
